This mount is only a few weeks old. I have used it only twice. It is in as new condition.
Please feel free to e-mail with questions or call if you are intersted. My cell phone # is 502-262-4223. I will sell only within the U.S. I have all of the original boxes.
I'm asking just $6,500 plus shipping. I'm going out of town the 23rd and hope to sell and ship this thing before then.
